Yes Nivard you are absolutely right. I don't know what happened there
as I cut and pasted the link from the page.
Oh well just another faux pas I have made today. Think I will go to
bed so I don't make any more:-))

This is a gentle reminder that personal advertising of goods and services
and/or commercial advertising is not generally permitted on the List.
There are, however, some acceptable forms of advertising so if you wish to
advertise goods, services, or events, it is always best to first run the
idea past the Administrator the List, privately, not least as a matter of
courtesy and most importantly to make sure the mailing will be within the
Rootsweb acceptable use policy, as well as being within the guidelines for
the particular forum/list.
I will always be very happy to advise on such matters privately off list .

The tithe maps and apportionments records for other parts of Surrey are held
at Surrey History Centre but not included in the current project CD/DVD
releases. SHC's online catalogue confirms Croydon is amongst those held.
Whether or not the metropolitan parishes of Surrey and Croydon will
eventually be available in similar fashion is not specified at present.
There is much useful background information on the SHC site.
There are detailed indexes of names included in the parishes already
transcribed, free to view online:

I noticed that Croydon is not listed among the places that the records
apply to. Might that be somewhere else or coming in a future project?
I also notice that the index doesn't tell you where to look for that
person so that you can tie that name to a place.
Am I missing something?
Hello Surrey Listers,
It did make me smile and a memory jog seeing that name.
In my ancient age group I seem to remember it was in a song of sorts
and my mum/dad always referred to Fred Fernackapan - like - when
something went wrong it was always "it's Fred Fernackapan" !! He was
always handy to blame.....
Well bor, us Norfolkians allus had suffen gorn wrong!!

A twerp was always used as a mild name for someone a little silly or who had done something foolish
OED has it in rather stronger terms but I would not recognise its use in that form or at east only
the last description (another word we don't hear much these days :-)
Forms: Also twirp.
Etymology: Of uncertain origin. See quots. 1944, 1957; T. W. Earp of Exeter College, Oxford,
matriculated in Michaelmas Term, 1911....
A despicable or objectionable person; an insignificant person, a nobody; a nincompoop.

The list is for discussion about all aspects of family, local and social history in all the ancient parishes of Surrey, England, including those that were eventually transferred to London in the late nineteenth century. If a place has ever been in Surrey we deal with it here.
The list is set up so that replies go back to all subscribers. This is intended to encourage discussion and participation.
Please use meaningful subject lines in emails eg BROWN family, Farnham, or Guildford Builders 18th Century. Capital letters for surnames (only) is useful.
Digest subscribers have a choice of Format. Please contact me /off list/ to request changes.
Please use PLAIN TEXT for all your messages and please delete all previous messages in replies, EXCEPT the one to which you are replying.
If your email provider, eg Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, Ymail, RocketMail, doesn't retain the plain text setting, please make sure you adjust your settings each time you send a message to the list. This is a Rootsweb rule.
Administrative matters or any problem with the list should be discussed with
me privately at Eng-Surrey-Admin@rootsweb.com and not on the List.
I hope you enjoy your time with us. The essential administrative information follows...
